This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1850, and we understand it is still open.

The Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation is a Grade I Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details. It was formerly a Dominican Priory, restored by Charles HANSOM for William LEIGH in 1846-9. It was built for the Passionist Fathers, taken over by the Dominicans in 1850, and continued as a parish church after the Priory buildings were demolished in 1971.

Charles HANSOM also designed the Poor Clare Convent in Convent Lane, Woodchester.


Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.


This Church is located at OS grid reference SO8417201065. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

(NB I know the first two don't work as intended - the Jury's still out as to what to do about it...)


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Woodchester, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.
